“Find that word that you've been thinking about all day but just can't seem to remember”. This is something we MSers get, whether occasionally or frequently. This site might help you find that word:

Thanks @Rolley , I wasn't sure quite how useful it might it to others, so I'm pleased you found very useful. I'd only tested briefly once, to see if it would find "microwave"; this was a real-life example of a word an MSer I know once couldn't remember. I entered "m" for Partial Word > Starts With, and "heat" for Word Meaning, and left everything else blank. Indeed, "microwave" came up, albeit a bit further down the list of suggestions.

 

I hope others find it useful too.

    • Can't stop typing the 'f' word

      Ha, I've had weird sensations for so long now, they're becoming 'normal'. Recently, I've seen the funny side of things which I could never have envisualised. I've noticed the last couple of weeks I've been typing 'f's in in inappropriate places. It's only today I realized why. I rest my fingers on the keyboard as I'm a typist, and my 'devil' finger rests on the f key. So it must be twitching and pressing the f key uncontrollably.   On the way to school my friend laughs that I keep 'pushing' her or my daughter into the gutter, when I have my dizzy head.   My memory is laughable too. When I told my son he had Maths, English and Sausages next day, instead of Science - well, you have to laugh, or you'd cry!!!!!!!!!   Tonight I stood at the school gate and went so dizzy I had to grab hold of my friend's arm - it soon passed, and she made a joke about having to give me a fireman's lift home.   So, I'm feeling a bit emotional really. Still don't have my answers, but symptoms flaring - just pleased I don't have my REALLY dizzy head and rumbling tinnitus I had a couple of years back - at least I can KIND OF function.   My muscles are jumping so badly todayf that my sonf can even see them from about 8 feet away - my arms are going mad. So, at least my symptoms are becoming visible. Don't know if that's a good or bad thing haha.   Sorry for rambling. fJust wanted to get it off my chest. And I've left the f's in to illustrate my point.   Jan. xx.

    • Finding A Suitable Neuro

      Not uncommonly, we sometimes get referred to neuros who are not specialised in MS. This can lead to delayed DX's or even to dismissal of the idea that it might be MS.   Ideally, when asking for a referral to a neuro, we should ask for a neuro who specialises in MS. The MS Trust has a list of MS specialists in various areas, including MS nurses and physiotherapists, which you can find here: http://www.mstrust.org.uk/information/centres/
